Our devices, systems, and infrastructure are becoming increasingly connected
Improves our efficiency, effectivity, and lowers our costs
The term itself, Internet of Things or IoT, conveys the fact that "things" comprised of hardware and software that operate on data, and potentially provide services, are all connected via the internet and are uniquely addressable. Because of this connectivity to the internet and the unique addressability, "things" can communicate and collaborate to make our lives better, lower our costs and enable us and the systems we use to be more efficient. Many of these “things” or devices can sense and actuate either on their own or can be remotely monitored and controlled by other “things”. With this connectivity and effectivity, there are many benefits that can be realized by us as individuals and by our businesses.
Connectivity increases risk and vulnerability
When operating correctly the IoT should:
- Improve efficiency for us as individuals and for our businesses
- Give us more autonomy
- Lower our costs
- Maximize our safety
- Improve our lives
To enable this to happen, we need to protect these connected devices from bad actors. Our data must be protected both in the devices and while in transit between them. Our transactions must be secured and impenetrable. The commands and responses sent between our connected devices must be “known good” or authenticated to ensure that the systems perform their intended function accurately, timely, safely, and securely.
Securing the IoT
In reality, securing the IoT is a monumental task and the security of the connected world is only as good as the weakest links.
